Dark secrets of points calculation :)
The FEDER Historical Fencing League rank consists of points won in three types of tournaments: cup competitions,
championships and selected experimantal tournaments. Points from cup competitions are multiplied by 0.8. Points
from experimental tournaments - by 0.6. Championships are most important - for them multiplier is 1.
How are points awarded in individual tournaments?
The top four competitors receive a constant number of points - first place is 100 points, second is 90, then 80 and 70. Rest of the competitors get points calculated in the following way:
Lets take a look at an example: competitor John participated in four longsword tournaments during whole year: Durchschlag (cup competition), Nordfecht (experimental), W3 (cup competition) and Championships. John was fourth in Durchschlag so he received 70 points. Durschlag is a cup competition which means it has multiplier 0.8, so after first tournament John had 56 rank points (70 * 0.8). Next, John won tournament during Nordfecht - he got 100 points for first place, but since Nordfecht tournament is experimental it gave Jonh only 60 rank points (100 * 0.6). Third tournament was W3, where Jonh finished fifth in group and didn't advance to playoff phase. His fifth place in group gave him 24.29 points, which translates to 19.43 rank points (24.29 * 0.8). Finally, in championships John advanced to playoffs from second place in his group but didn't get past 1/8 phase. This result gave him 50.24 points, and those points go to rank as championships' multiplier is 1. In total John has 185.67 points (56 + 60 + 19.43 + 50.24).

The top four competitors receive a constant number of points - first place is 100 points, second is 90, then 80 and 70. Rest of the competitors get points calculated in the following way:
- part of points is given for group phase. Last place in group gives 5 points, first place - 50. Other places get points between 5 and 50, depending on number of competitors in that group and exact place taken.
- competitors who advance to playoffs receive additional points depending on number of playoff phases (meaning if they start from 1/16 or 1/8) and the phase they reach.
